LIM offers lecture workshop on spiritual care ministry

February 17, 2012

Loyola University New Orleans' Institute for Ministry is offering a Friday night lecture on spirituality and a Saturday workshop on how spiritual care/chaplaincy ministry can aid the fostering of spirituality in the workplace. Saturday will also explore spiritual care/chaplaincy both as a profession and a ministerial vocation.

The Friday presentation, titled “Ministry as Being Attentive to Mystery,” will take place on March 2 at 7 p.m. in Miller Hall, Room 114. It is free and open to the public. It can also be viewed as a webinar. It will argue that attentiveness to one’s own spirituality, as well as the spirituality of one’s co-workers and one’s workplace, is integral to the effectiveness of one’s ministry. To view the webinar, enter as a guest and simply type your name. Viewers logging in early will not be permitted entrance until the start time.

The Saturday workshop, titled “Being Attentive to the Ministry, Meaning, and Movement with the Spiritual Care Ministry,” is scheduled for Saturday, March 3 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. in Miller Hall, Room 112.

There is no charge for the Friday night event, but there is a $25 charge for the Saturday workshop, which includes lunch and 4.5 hours of continuing education credit. Parking is free and available in the West Road garage.

Both presentations will be conducted by the Executive Director of the National Association of Catholic Chaplains, David A. Lichter, D.Min. Lichter frequently lectures on topics related to ministry and spirituality and teaches business ethics and non-western religions as adjunct faculty member of Cardinal Stritch University’s College of Business and Management in Milwaukee, Wisc.
